Chachu Kamlaa had thought due to pressure upon himself, he should start thinking if getting hitched. Though it was quite early for his age, but the thought nonetheless was noble.
Chachu thus made a profile on a leading matrimony site BharatMatrimony last night, and they automatically redirected him to PunjabiMatrimony, since he being a Punjabi dude or something!
After making a profile at night, he received an automated confirmation call soon then itself. And the next morning he received a call from BharatMatrimony at 10.37am and again at 10.39am (since he missed the earlier one) telling him about their premium features.
The customer care guy told him about what the features were, what premium features would include, the cost for it and then asked if Chachu would like to go for it.
CC Guy then was like ‘When would you like to go for it?’.
Chachu didn’t plan to, so thats what he clearly told him.
CC Guy then suggested what is the point of keeping a profile there and that he should delete it.
Just felt an Earthquake shake up the bed I was lying on working on a College project.I would have to guess it to be in the vicinity of 6 Richter, though I am no expert but it was the most powerful one that I have ever felt![Janak Puri, New Delhi – September 07th, 2011 23:28 hrs]
“But Jawahar Tiwari needed to show the district as ‘covered’ by him in the government records, hence he approached the local District Magistrate with his predicament. The DM asked for a bribe in lieu of handing out a fake certificate that his district was covered by Mr. Tiwari. After a lot of introspection Mr. Tiwari agreed to bribe the DM, creating the first ‘successful’ bribery case in independent India as per the NGO.”
I am no proponent of hair cutting, and I actually am totally against it done by any Sikh in any form.
I went on a journey into not so interiors of Punjab, just went to Jalandhar bus stand, and a realization dawned on me while waiting for my bus.
I was there for around more than 2 hours, and for some reason I felt – in absence of proper guidance, the poor population of Punjab is THE least worried about keeping their hair unshorn. I somehow believe, it’s the deadly mix of – poverty, lack of guidance, low motivation, and no enlightening factor which makes them do it, and not stay away from the way they are. It’s not improvement or a change in life’s way for them, it’s just a responsibility they would rather do away with!
In the half day that I was at PTU Jalandhar or Kapurthala or someplace, almost every person who came with a person or all alone, he/she was directly directed by the ‘Inquiry’ to Counter no. 6, Dinesh’s counter! And he happily goes about doing his job, which inadvertently involves staying away from his seat long long times. Couldn’t they get 1 or more of those “I’ve nothing better to do, so I will just go visit the canteen every hour or so”.
